Went to see 1984 in the Almeida theatre. Overall very happy with the experience. I bought my tickets on the day by turning up at 10 and joining the cue.

Audience: we're more than audience. We participate...more

My recent visit to the Almeida theatre was for a production of Patrick Hamilton's "Rope" - which was very good incidentally.

This is more of an update on some previous reviews (which are also very good and quite detailed too) by other Yelpers. The updates are thus; the auditorium is no longer the standard stage-and-then-all-the-seats-facing-from-the-front style. It is now circular...more
